Pragmatic Play Kicks Off Festive Winter Season with Santa’s Wonderland Slot
Experience the festive winter session like never before in Santa’s Wonderland slot by Pragmatic Play. The leading provider of the iGaming market is bringing the most important Christmas character to the reels – Santa himself and is starting this session of celebration with a cheerful blast on the reels.
The grid comes in a 8×8 formation decorated with garlands and flickering Christmas lights. The grid is fulfilled with all sorts of presents that bring some hefty prizes. Santa behaves as a Wild with a power to substitute for all regular symbols and ensure players have a chance to create more winning combos.
Instead of paylines, players get to enjoy cluster pay mechanics and tumble features which again increase their chances of landing a major win. Symbols forming a winning combination disappear from the grid and are replaced with a new set. This symbol tumble continues until the player hits a dead spin.
During the base game, random symbols on the grid are accentuated with a special color. There are 5 types of these special colors and depending which of them is part of the winning combo, different bonus features are triggered.
As stated by Julian Jarvis, Chief Executive Officer at Pragmatic Play:
“Though we designed the new slot with Christmas festivities in mind, we wanted to include a bunch of exciting mechanics that will allow it to be enjoyed throughout the year. Santa’s Wonderland offers a truly bespoke experience that is set to amuse audiences across the globe, featuring a unique Midnight Riches Feature that can reward players with sizable wins.”
Players get to experience the Refresh feature which removes all symbols from the grid bar Wilds and brings in the new ones. When Wild Santa is triggered, all instances of one randomly chosen symbol turn into Wild. Blocks are adding 2×2 blocks of the same symbols on random positions on the grid while the Supersized feature brings random blocks of 3×3, 4×4, and 5×5. Lucky Santa adds 5 to 15 Wilds on random positions across the grid.
The Midnight Riches meter is filled with the number of winning symbols during a tumble and once it reaches 140, the Midnight Riches feature is triggered. The feature starts at level 1 and all spin modifiers are guaranteed to be played once per level. What makes the whole bonus round even more exciting, all wins have a win multiplier starting at 3x.
All in all, Pragmatic Play has made the slot where the action can build up and blow up with an amazing 7,500x the bet. Players who like to get into the Christmas spirit during this time of the year will certainly appreciate the fresh addition to the iGaming market.
